Because secure IoT is the grand challenge of the digital age

The future is a blend of bits and atoms. It’s digital and analog. And IoT is its threat and opportunity.

IoT is a technology that directly affects products that businesses use in their facilities and supply chains, and that consumers use in their kitchen or car or gym. That has a giant impact on improving productivity, reducing escalations, maintaining financial transparency, and reducing the technical and financial risk of integrating information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT).

Focused on security, end-to-end integration, and a simplified business model, Afero assembled a team that has deep engineering expertise: from mobile device technologies to development environments and productivity tools, from cryptography to data science and artificial intelligence, and from blockchain to cloud computing. These disciplines don’t always speak the same language, so having them under the same roof and working out integration issues while engineering-in security has been an incredibly important achievement. The result is something really unique in the market: a fully integrated, fully interactive, fully secure sensor-to-cloud IoT platform.
